Hello! I am Federico Barusco, data engineer and 360-degree tech passionate.

I have gained extensive professional experience on several data oriented projects including assessment, design and implementation of big data architectures (cloud, on-premise and hybrid) from the ingestion to the visualization layer, ETL development, library and microservices implementation and containerization.

I love to practise sports (mostly gym, cycling and hiking), take care of my garden, read and challenge myself in the kitchen.
